European Elections June 2024

The ASI is part of the Europe-wide campaign led by Alzheimer Europe to Make Dementia a European Priority. The organisation is asking all candidates to pledge to

  1. Join the European Alzheimer’s Alliance
  2. Support the campaign of Alzheimer Europe and its member organisations to make dementia a European priority, with specific actions in the following four key areas:
  • Ensuring dedicated EU funding for dementia-focused research across all disciplines, commensurate with the societal and economic cost associated with dementia
  • Responding to the scale of dementia as a health challenge by prioritising the condition as part of the next health programme of the EU
  • Acknowledging dementia as a disability, affording people with dementia the rights guaranteed under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD)
  • Undertaking focused work at an EU level to provide greater support and protections for carers
